Carlos Delgado sidelined at Triple-A by more hip problems

Aug 17, 2010, 10:47 AM EST

Carlos Delgado’s comeback from hip surgery has stalled after just five games at Triple-A because more hip and lower back problems.
Dan Barbarisi of the Providence Journal reports that “the injury is on the opposite side from the site of his two hip surgeries and is not believed to be serious,” but Delgado is expected to remain sidelined until at least the weekend.
Delgado can opt out of his minor league contract with the Red Sox if he’s not in the majors by the time rosters expand on September 1, so obviously the setback leaves him little time to show he’s ready.
He hasn’t faced big-league pitching since May 10 of last season and the 38-year-old went just 3-for-13 with zero extra-base hits, zero walks, and six strikeouts prior to being shut down.

    Oh well. It was worth a shot.

    Hip problems? Like couldn’t make the game because he had a curb scrape on his 22 inch rims and had to get new shoes for his pony? Because his iced out time piece was slow? Because the cover charge for the stadium was too low, so they just let everyone in there?
